Beds For Kids began with a small idea in 2003 when my eyes were opened to the fact that some kids did not have beds. I had a job that required me to go into homes for service work. I discovered children sleeping on floors or sharing beds with their parents. Although I felt moved to do something to help these kids, it didn’t seem feasible at that time.
Over the next several years, the thought of those kids without beds resurfaced time and again. In 2009, fueled by the injustice that my kids had warm beds while many others did not, I pitched the idea to my men’s Bible study. After much discussion, my friend said, “Let’s stop talking and start building. Even if only one kid gets a bed, then it was worth it.” So we began by making 4 beds.
